In the Catch22Minutes podcast, we delve into some of today’s major social challenges. We speak to frontline experts, industry leaders and young people, in pursuit of ideas for reforming public services.
The third season focuses on risk and resilience and is presented by Catch22’s Director of Communications and Engagement, Melissa Milner. Our episodes look at topics including child exploitation, online harms, county lines, substance abuse and more.
In this episode of Catch22Minutes, we’ll be exploring what safeguarding actually means in practice and why it’s so important. We’ll also be looking at the inequity that can occur in safeguarding and ask why some groups are sometimes safeguarded better than others.
Safeguarding involves taking measures to protect the health, wellbeing, and human rights of individuals. This allows young people, children, and vulnerable adults to live free from abuse, harm, and neglect. When safeguarding goes wrong, the consequences can be catastrophic, but when it is done well, it allows some of the most vulnerable in society to live safely and to thrive.
We are joined by the Directors of Listen Up, Janine Davis and Daniel Morris. Listen Up’s mission it is to amplify the experiences of minorities and marginalised children and young people until all children are seen, heard, and protected.
